ID cards

I came across the latest press release about ID cards bill in the UK, which (if it is correct) is likely to be opposed by the Tories and Lib Dems in the House of Lords. If this is the case, we are likely to see a delay in the introduction of ID cards, if and when the Bill goes through. As I reiterated in my previous posting, I still cannot see how such an expensive measure (ID cards) could be justified, when there are other proportionate, cost effective ways that could be used. I do not know what the latest public poll is to ID cards, but even if we rely on the last survey back in November, the public is still divided over the issue. See more here.
